Ford Approves Trade Reform Act;
Has Reservations About Enforcement

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
President Pord, in signing
the Trade Reform Act into
law, Friday, expressed "res-
ervations about the wisdom
of legislative language that
can only be seen as objec-
tionable and discriminatory
by other sovereign states."
Many of the act's provi-
sions, he said, "are complex
and may well prove difficult

to implement." However, he
declared that "in the spirit
of cooperation with the Con-
gress, I will do my best to
work out any necessary ac-
commodations."
Some among the 200 gov-
ernmental leaders and others
at the White House ceremony
thought the President was re-
ferring to the Jackson-Vanik
Amendment embodied in the
law that calls for easing of
Soviet emigration for Jews
and others in return for U. S.
trade benefits and credits.
But Jewish leaders present
interpreted his words as bear-
ing on the restrictions im-
posed by Congress on loans
th the Soviet Union by the
Export-Import Bank that re-
lates to the trade act.
Rabbi Israel Miller, chair_
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Ameri-
can Jewish Organizations,
and Stanley Lowell, president
of the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, both warmly
welcomed the new legisla-
tion in conversations with
newsmen at the White House.
"We are very happy the
Jackson Amendment is now
law," Lowell said. He pointed
out that Ford at a meeting
with Jewish leaders two
weeks ago was asked not to
waive the restrictions on

most-favored-nation t r a d e
treatment and credits to the
Soviet government until "he
felt the purposes of the act
for freer emigration were
carried out."
The president's reserva
tions at the signing, Lowell
said, referred to the Export-
Import Bank legislation that
forbids the U. S. government
from lending the Soviet gov-
ernment more than $300 mil-
lion over the next four years
without congressional con-
sent.
Under the Jackson-Vanik
measure, the President is re-
quired to report to Congress
at the end of 18 months on
how Soviet practices on emi-
gration conform to Soviet as-
surances as set forth in the
Kissinger letter to Jackson
that no restrictions will be
put on visa applications, and
neither the applicants nor
their families will be har-
rassed.
First tangible results of the
law and Soviet emigration
are expected to come be-
tween April and June. The
State Department indicated
that the effects' would be
soon, within 90 days. The
president himself, in his sign-
ing statement, said that the
implementation of the law
would come by "this sum-
mer."

Jewish Leaders in U.S. Oppose
Sentence Imposed on Dr. Stern

NEW YORK (JTA) —Jew-
ish leaders here denounced
the eight-year prison term
a n d property confiscation
sentence imposed by a
Ukrainian court on Dr. Mik-
hail Stern, the Vinnitsa Jew-
ish endocrinologist, on
charges of bribe-taking and
swindling.
Jewish sources in Moscow
reported that David Aksel-
baunt, Dr. Stern's defense
attorney, planned to appeal
the sentence which the court
ordered served in a
"strengthened" regime labor
camp, third most severe of
four categories. The prose-
cution had demanded a nine-
year sentence.
Dr. Stern, 56, was convicted
on 10 counts of taking bribes
in return for medical favors
and on 15 counts of bilking
patients by selling them
medicine at inflated prices.
Dr. Stern pleaded not guilty
to all the charges.
Jewish activists in t h e
Soviet Union and abroad
have charged that Dr. Stern
was a victim of Soviet re-
prisals for planning to emi-
grate with his sons to Israel.
Dr. Stern, who was head
of the polyclinic department
of the Vinnitsa endocrinolog-
ical dispensary, was charged
with accepting favors in re-
turn for declaring persons
unfit for military service, in
addition to allegedly selling
medicines at • a personal
profit.
Stanley H. Lowell, chair-
man of the National Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry, Eu-
gene Gold, chairman of the
Greater New York Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry, and
the Student Struggle for So-
viet J e w r y assailed the
sentence.
Lowell said that the prose-
cution "could not even pro-

duce the witnesses" to
"testify as to Dr. Stern's
alleged guilt" and that he
was guilty "only of his out-
spoken support of his sons'
desire to emigrate to Israel."
G o 1 d declared that wit-
nesses who had originally
accused Dr. Stern changed
their testimony and said he
was 'innocent of all charges.
He stated that the GNYCSJ
was u r g i n g Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger to
intervene immediately on
Dr. Stern's behalf and ask-
ing leaders in the Congress
"to speak out against this
mockery of justice."
The SSSJ said that Stern's
lawyer "was able to get al-
most every witness — 18 of
19 in the first three days of
the trial alone — to recant
his memorized testimony,"
making. it obvious that the
doctor's only real "crime"
was a "passionate desire" by
the family to emigrate to
Israel.
An SSSJ spokesman said
the SSSJ had sent a cable to
Soviet Health Minister Botis
Petrovsky demanding im-
mediate medical care for Dr.
Stern, who suffers from pul-
monary tuberculosis and a
stomach ulcer.
